The unforgettable piece from the Woody Allen's "Love and Death" movie (1975!):

Sonja (Deane Keaton): "To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down."

The must-see video:

"What if there were a place? Where you could live forever? In love and beauty? This is the promise of the island"

"The perfect life".

"The perfect lie".

So starts one of the trailers of The Island.

Along with The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy movie, This I think will be the most interesting movie of the summer.. Not only for the plot, still really interesting, but also for the presence in the cast of Scarlett Johansson, She will enlight the film, she'll do. :)

I like those movies with vision of devastating future - since Blade Runner it's a dogmatic vision - it won't happen never good after 2000 (or even before, following Snake Plissken).

Here you're chosen in a lottery, in order to life in an uncontamined place in the earth: one of the last remained. It takes no long to understand it's not so fictious hypotesis.

"Prepare your escape". Slogan perfect for me now.

The phrase: "The life you think you had... It never happened!"

I teach in higher courses about Communication and digital media. I've been coorganizer for TEDxViadellaConciliazione, plus founder of BETA magazine et al.
